How hard is the hike?

You'll explore two different trails and hike approximately 5 miles. Both trails are rated as easy to moderate and include a 500-foot elevation gain. You should be able to walk at least 6 miles on flat pavement, or 5 miles of uneven rolling terrain over the course of 4 hours. You should also be able to balance well and feel comfortable walking in muddy and slippery conditions. Some parts of the trail are steep and hilly, placing additional stress on areas of the body not impacted by level terrain.

How long is the drive from Anchorage?

It takes approximately 30 to 40 minutes to drive from Anchorage to the trailhead.

Where does this experience take place?
